How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Manassas Park you depend on your furnace to keep you cozy. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system looks to be operating well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can stop air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you might have to have a furnace repair. The quicker you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you notice any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Woody's Sudden Service Inc.

1. Your furnace is noisy. You could have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before.
2. Your blower isn’t operating correctly. Is it running enough? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You might have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you increased the temperature again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could indicate a few different problems. It could be an issue with your thermostat. It may be a problem with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t big enough for your space.
4. Your monthly bill keeps climbing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps climbing. This could signal a few different problems. Your HVAC expert will help sort out what’s going amiss.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, stop your furnace at once and shut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect your system.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
